NEW YORK, June 12 Hewlett-Packard Co
Chief Executive Officer Meg Whitman said on Wednesday that
revenue growth was "still possible" for the computer maker in
its next fiscal year but that the performance of the overall PC
market was a wild card.
HP shares rose 4 percent to $25.22 in morning New York Stock
Exchange trading after Whitman's comments in an interview on
cable network CNBC.
Wall Street analysts have estimated revenue of $108.9
billion for HP's 2014 fiscal year, according to Thomson Reuters
I/B/E/S. That would be down from their expectation of $111.4
billion for fiscal 2013, which ends in October.
Whitman, who took the helm at the world's largest PC maker
more than a year ago, is working on a turnaround at the company.
